Re: The only happy thing about Black Friday

Milo's famous sweet tea jug you see in the photo is a take it or leave it beverage to go with the traditional sandwich. I poured out the wine from yesterday that is also traditional with turkey feasts. The sweet tea was a lot better for washing the sandwich down....or anything else. Wine will do as ...

The only happy thing about Black Friday

My favorite thing about the day after Thanksgiving too. This has been my favorite after Thanksgiving sandwich since I was a small boy. It has to be made a specific way with no additions or modifications. No lettuce, no toast, no tomato, no sauce but mayonnaise. The jellied cranberry sauce is probabl...

Re: I read it in a newspaper from a hundred years ago

During Clinton's time he forbad the import of military collectibles like M1 Garands and Carbines it seems I remember. Really pandered to, by comparison,the lesser fear mongers the...
